The final production version of the Volvo S60 Polestar has been officially unveiled, revealing the company’s rival for the M5, the RS6 or the E63 AMG.
Following the teaser images released just last week, the new Swedish powerful vehicle has been officially unveiled. The model weighs 1,684 kg (3,712 lbs) and it’s benefiting from several upgrades to its body, like the front splitter corners, the rear diffuser or the rear spoiler. The cabin of the Volvo S60 Polestar has badges on the steering wheel and on the door sills, and it also gets new door trims and a specific gearshift knob. The model is sitting on 19-inch wheels wrapped in Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires 235/40 in size and it has Brembo ventilated brake discs, stainless steel exhaust system and upgraded suspension system.
The most important part of the S60 Polestar is found under its hood, where the 2,953 cc T6 engine is resting. The unit is good for 350 HP (257 kW) at 5,700 rpm and just over 500 Nm of torque (369 lb-ft) available between 2,800 and 4,750 rpm. The engine is mated to a six-speed automatic transmission which is sending power to the Haldex all-wheel drive system. The Volvo S60 Polestar is getting launch control and it can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.9 seconds, before reaching an electronically limited top speed of 250 km/h (155 mph).
